Inflammation, or bleeding is a sign of gingivitis or gum disease. Plaque build-up on teeth can lead to hardened tartar which requires professional removal. If ignored, this hardened build-up around the teeth can lead to bone loss and eventual tooth loss! We must first evaluate the gums to see how advanced the gum disease is, after which we will formulate a gum therapy and maintenance schedule that is specific to your particular needs.
Dr. Carly loves seeing children! All children under age five will receive a free first dental check-up.
Root Canal Treatment
An infected tooth can be unbearable. A root canal allows us to salvage the tooth by cleaning out the inside of the roots. Once the roots are sealed, the tooth will function normally. Leaving the infection may cause it to spread and could lead to tooth loss.
A combination of plastic and glass particles makes tooth-coloured fillings undetectable! The material bonds to the tooth surface, allowing us to remove as little of your tooth as possible.
Once a tooth has a large filling or a crack, or often once a root canal has been performed, a cap or crown is placed on the tooth to strengthen it. Much like a tooth-coloured fillings, crowns can be made to match your surrounding teeth.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, veneers or bonding of tooth-coloured filling material is a great option! These materials are bonded to the outside of the tooth to create a more favourable tooth shade and shape.
As dentists, we always want to save teeth if possible, but in some cases they have to go! We discuss all tooth replacement options when we plan on removing a tooth.
